Man Struck by Train

According to The Dalles Police Department, a man was struck and killed by a train at 1st and Union in The Dalles early Saturday morning (7/5). Shon Hill, 39, of Ione, was lying on the railroad right of way at the time of the incident. It’s not known if he was sleeping or unconscious at the time. He was struck Saturday morning at 4:08. Hill had been arrested for suspicion of DUII by Oregon State Police in the Hood River area on Friday. He had been booked at NORCOR but not lodged because of a medical condition. He was taken to Mid-Columbia Medical Center and then released Friday night around 9:20. It’s not known how he got from the hospital to the location where he was struck. The incident does not appear to be related to the celebration at Festival Park the night of the Fourth.
